Yaayyy! What a week! Whilst I sit down and munch on my favourite snack Twiglets and flick between my favourite songs by the bands London Grammar (Truth is a beautiful thing) album “Oh woman, oh man” playing right now and Oh Wonder band up next, I am now reflecting on the week I have had…I’m chilled now so here goes.
Work, work, work, and more work. Delivery, delivery, delivery, Yaaayyyyy a delivery! My future in boxes delivered, my dreams inside bursting to jump out.
Melita Latham London arrived! The products arrived at 10am to my workplace, but because I was so busy I was unable to get to see the products until about 5.30pm. It was all a bit of a mad rush but I saw everything for the first time. My heart was racing, my eyes widen as each tear of the box revealed the contents and then suddenly I was filled with fear. I was incredibly happy seeing everything I worked towards right in front of me but I couldn’t help but panic inside. What now? Where do I go from here? I know what I need to do next to take Melita Latham London to the next stage but the nerves got me for a moment.
I’m super happy, it all looks amazing. The logo really stands out and its exactly what I imagined. I’m really scared though. It is normal I am telling myself. Perfectly normal to feel this way.
I will be sharing with you more than I have ever done before now as I have the real thing. Each item will be out there in the big wide world for you to purchase. More details coming soon, keep an eye out!
This week also included something I had wanted to do for a while to try and help others in need. So, I made time to do so. If I am able to, I will. A friend of mine and I planned to go into the City of Brighton and give out bottles of water and fresh baguettes to homeless people. I wouldn’t normally share something like this but actually one woman touched my heart just by a glance, it upset me so much so I got a little bit teary. If you are able to help in any way please do. Small change, a bottle of water, sandwich or just anything you can do.
The homeless people you see all have stories just like you or I. They all have feelings and they all have a beating heart like ours. They are human.
We left water and food for those sleeping, wide awake, and some probably completely out of it, but in all honesty they are not all like the stereotypical homeless people you hear stories about. It’s difficult to explain actually in text but the woman that I cried about was so polite, grateful, and can’t have been much older than I.
I gave her a ten pound note. She said “Bless you, thank you so much, and have a lovely evening” I had a thought in my head at that moment. Has anyone ever given her a new ten pound note yet? Will she thinks it’s Monopoly money? Has she been on the streets long enough to know whats going on with royal mint? My thoughts became a bit ridiculous and I felt utterly stupid thinking them. I was filled with such sadness though and felt incredibly helpless.
My friend gave money and was very generous with one man who approached us but you know what again he was courteous and thankful when he was given money. Next time before you walk by someone homeless please spare whatever you can. It can be just kind words.
So that happened although I can’t stop thinking about it and I am going to do my very best to do it again soon.
Also this week I have had again a busy week on social media. The response to the sneak peaks of the products has been awesome. It has gone crazy. My Instagram is doing better than it has done in ages. You can find me on @melita_latham on both Twitter and Instagram. I have some great things planned.
I LOVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT OK! I have an issue. I’d rather get on a train than drive my car. I’d rather lug my suitcase around than put it in my boot and drive my car. Well, I say rather, I wouldn’t but I just do.
Everyone thinks I’m barmy but right now have so much on in my brain that I can’t bring myself to concentrate on something that fills me with even more dread than eating fish! I hate fish oh and peas! Yuk! I just can’t do driving right now. The thought of peas when the skin breaks away ewww. I prefer to eat Branston beans too rather than Heinz because similar happens with Heinz beans the skin peels away. No. And sweetcorn thats a no go but for a very different reason. I’m going off track here. I will jump back in the car very soon.
I have scheduled a post for a restaurant I went to previously and also this week so that is all written up and will be coming out next week.
What else? I am still pretty tired. Every day I wake up I wish I had more hours in the day to do things I need to get sorted. I get up early every day although twice this week I over slept. It’s catching up with me slowly. That’s so annoying over sleeping.
I put the heating on at the start of this post which was a bad move because I am now feeling incredibly tired. I do this often, turn it up full blast and then waking up two hours later slumped on the sofa or doing my very best to keep my eyes open. I am at this point now so I think seeing as it is my first night at home, in my own bed since Sunday, I am going to get my head down as this weekend will be an incredibly busy one. I’m looking forward to it.
